As I Softly Pray

I have set a goal for myself to toss out no less than 2 big bags of trash every week until the rest of the “stuff” is gone.  I started my “de-cluttering” some time ago and as I so often do, I fell off the bandwagon.  I will say that I have been doing a little bit here and a little bit there, but now I am down to the “stuff” that I set aside as “not sure if I should keep it or sell it or give it away.

Well anyway, I was going through one of my drawers and found a journal and I started leafing through it and found a little prayer I wrote down back on October 17, 2001.  I know what you’re thinking and stop it right now!!!!  Yes, I am a pack rat, but this journal is special which is why I kept it. 

I thought I would share the prayer with you so here it is:

 

As I gaze into a sky so bright,

While I say my prayers tonight,

On bended knee I softly pray,

Lord, forgive me of my sins today.

May I be slower towards wrath,

Yet quicker to love,

And focus my attention,

On the one above.

I pray for peace,

My flesh to be still,

And to follow the plans,

Of my Lord’s will.

I’m thankful that,

My Lord chose me,

For without Him,

Who knows where I would be.

Amen.
